Fitness Week Kicks Off Sunday

Restaurant Week — the Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce’s promotion of all things culinary — ended recently.

If you think the Chamber will celebrate the successful event with a cocktail or two, think again.

Starting Sunday (November 3), they’ll sponsor Fitness Week.

 The event kicks off from 1 to 4 p.m., with an expo at the Westport Weston Family Y.

A dozen local fitness studios will provide information, kids’ activities, and friendly competitions like sit-ups, push-ups and planks (3 to 4 p.m.; $10 to enter, benefiting Special Olympics).

Juice bars and restaurants provide healthy food samples, too.

All week, through November 10, studios will offer free classes. A raffle for attendees sweetens the pot: The more you exercise, the greater the chance to win prizes.

A family fun run is set for Saturday, November 9.

Participating businesses include Club Pilates, Fast Fitness, Fleet Feet, JoyRide, Cycling + Fitness, Orangetheory, Fitness Performance Physical Therapy, Restore Hyper Wellness + Cryotherapy, Row House, Sherpa, Stretch Lab and Westport Pilates.
